Here are five Coldplay songs (and snippets of lyrics) that I absolutely love. No...wait! Six!
My apolgies for the inconsistent fonts and sizing below. Blogger is not cooperating this morning.
From 2005 album, X&Y
1) "X&Y" (title track)
I know something is broken,
And I'm trying to fix it.
Trying to repair it, Any way I can
You and me are floating on a tidal wave...Together
You and me are drifting into outer space...
2) "Fix You"
When you try your best, but you don't succeed,
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep,
Stuck in reverse...
Lights will guide you home,
And ignite your bones,
And I will try to fix you
Every step that you take,
Could be your biggest mistake,
It could bend or it could break,
That's the risk that you take ...
What if you should decide,
That you don't want me there by your side,
That you don't want me there in your life
From 2002 album, A Rush of Blood to the Head
4) "In My Place"
In my place, in my place,
Were lines that I couldn't change,
I was lost, oh yeah. I was lost, I was lost,
Crossed lines I shouldn't have crossed, I was lost, oh yeah.
5) "The Scientist"
I was just guessing,6) "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face"
At numbers and figures,
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science,
Science and progress,
Do not speak as loud as my heart
Tell me you love me,
Come back and haunt me,
Oh and I rush to the start
Where do we go, nobody knows,
Don't ever say you're on your way down when
God gave you style and gave you grace,
And put a smile upon your face
